The hippies of the 60’s cried for it .
Our founding fathers fought for it.
Mothers shout at their kids about it.
Each group looking for peace THEIR WAY. Hippies wanted out of the “system.” The founding fathers had to fight their way to peace. Mothers need alone time, feeling sure that’s where they will get their peace.
And here our blog hostess is facing the passing of her mother. I know from experience that there is PEACE that comes with the passing of a saint who has suffered long enough. But I also now the longing for the very mother who might have been deserving of the promotion to heaven. Even so, peace comes in spite of the loss – I still miss my mother but I no longer cry for her as I did in the beginning.
So how do we keep and maintain peace in spite of life? In spite of the bad news, rejection, disappointments, fights, wars, rebellions and more. Life is less than peaceful most of the time. But we NEED peace! To regulate our hearts and our minds.
Wars don’t really make lasting peace. Getting away from it all still requires a return to the chaos. Insisting on leaving the status quo won’t really help.
There’s nowhere to look but to the Word of God. So we look beyond ourselves, our situations, our problems and our desires to get away and look to the Lord:
